Re: thin booties, sharp objects, too keep out sand Help!

Umm after 6y using five fingers and now the new model just for marine application, I'm quite happy with that. I'm not noticing any sand or shells in them. Use search for the review.

Re: Alternative to brazil, november-december

Western Australia has more than enough wind and places to look for adventure.

Busy yes, expensive too, but hey, we still have drinking water ;)

Re: Lecca-Lecca Minima 11m First Flight

Turning speed on Sonic1 and OR1 is not that slower than Lei in 9 and 11 m size, respectively. To be fair, both this kites can be looped with significant speed, and are fast moving across the wind window. The OR1 is deeper in the window tho, Sonic is not. That's like going from Edge to something else...

Re: Board design -- also a boring question

Whats stopping you? ;) Cmon, I've been using my 2x1.5m laundry for years... Anyways, spray comes from edges, sand off the edges on some angle = no spray. At least on my boards. Why negative outline on some boards? I.e. Litewave. More area. Less area less drag, the optimum is somewhere in the middle...

Re: How do I get traction on the surface of my Alaia?

Search the forum for Alaia. Basically, use the peelply fabric on top of polyester. When cured, remove pply and that's it.

Re: My first kitesurf board! Eps Foam okay ?

Well, Whats the point of placing 2 pics of your latest build Tom? The OP didn't ask for that either to be fair. I would not attempt building a surf board even tho I've built a complete HF...in my laundry, talking about the shop needed;) Anyways, each to his own... And an Alaia IS a LW board no matte...
